IN THEIR WORDS

Head coach Ryun Williams on Lore Devos:

“Lore is one of the best young talents in all of Belgium. She just does a lot of things on the basketball court very well and does them with an incredible toughness. I love the fact that she has been competing against level one professional talent in Belgium and performing well. Her strong versatile skillset will fit nicely with our team.”

Athleticism:

  • She can play F/C with the ball.
  • She defends successfully around 1 * 1 high * low.
  • With her rebound intuition, she gives herself an advantage in attacking.
  • Her feet are slow in 1 * 1 defense.
  • She prefers to narrow more space than pressure on the ball.
  • She has a switch feature in defense of PnR, but the sleight of her foot is a problem.

PnR Ball Handler:

+

  • Playing PnR to her right or left doesn’t matter to her.
  • Pull-up over PnR is her greatest feature.
  • By hitting her left, her endings are much stronger.
  • Around the short corner, she plays the PnR (Collective Player) on-field spacing so accurately.
  • She ends with so critical statistics in 4 * 5 PnR games.

Strengths on Offense (+)

  • When she does the switch, she does not put pressure on the player in possession of the ball, her feet slow down.
  • She instinctively goes under in the PnR defense.
  • In PnR defenses, she doesn’t use 3 point choice when she runs under her own defense.
  • Her choices are wrong when she doesn’t use her shot and break the spacing and rush in.

Deficiencies on Offense (-)

  • Her middle distance and pull-ups are very successful
  • Her ribaund sense is top level as offence/defence
  • Her strongest side is her 1/1 high-lows
  • She uses very successfully 1/1 low post defence startings
  • She is suitable for 4 runners in modern basketball and the plays except the inside one
  • Her low post game reading intelligence is high level
  • She doesn’t use 3 point choice
  • She makes choice mistake after her unused shot
  • She has problems with fast guard defense

Her full court defence is very weak

 

 

Personality

• The most dominant player in its own generation of European basketball, a player who can play in every position including inside and has different characteristics.

• Physical and some characteristics similar to the Italian Zandalisini (except for outside shot) and if she makes the right career planning, European career is very open to development.

• Although her physical disadvantages occur after injury, the first two years in Europe will be very decisive in terms of her arrival.

• In this process, as soon as she stabilizes her outside shot, she will surely try wnba.

• Each of her positions to have basic and modern basketball features, with her physical strength and intelligence, now clear that she will be one of the most important players of Europe.

• As long as Belgian basketball continues with this system, it will bring more players to European basketball.
